On personal branding

  • Personal branding, to me, is less around the person as it is around the people that they actually serve. A strong personal brand is usually creating content and connecting with the target audience that really needs to hear what they have to say.
  • […] YouTube, LinkedIn, content platforms, speaking, podcasting, there are so many ways to grow your personal brand. Social media is just one part of it.
  • You can build a brand not having an excellent Instagram or Twitter feed.
  • They [many people] think, “To have a personal brand, I’ve got to be tweeting. I’ve got to be putting photos up.” It’s not about that. It’s about what’s your message, who is your audience, and how can you best communicate with them.
  • There’s no definition that says personal branding equals social media. It’s just being known for something.
  • If you put out generalized content [with] no clear goal of where you want it to get to or who you want to read it, then probably nobody will read it. The power is in the niche.

On discovering a niche

  • Niche, niche, then niche again. Get your niche and then go two more layers of niching. You’ll, around that point, find a place that you’re not going to be competing with other people in but there would be more than enough people to buy from you.
